It has lead to a lot of discomfort to all the citizens of the country who have ended up in huge lines outside their banks or ATMs which have been virtually without money from the past couple of weeks.
With this step the whole of India has been discussing just one thing “Demonetization” and which ATMs are having money is the next hottest topic among friends, family and strangers alike.

The developers have now updated the app to give the option to find the ATMs with cash near your location.
If you are thinking how it is updated with the information, it is crowd sourced which is based on the information given by its 1.8 million user base who keep updating about the details of the ATM with or without money. To know if the ATM has money or not, the App shows Pins on the Map with different colors depicting the following – Green Pin tells that money is being withdrawn from the ATM, Orange Pin tells that the ATM was recently dispensing cash and Grey Pin means there is no cash from the past few days.
